1000 Words Photography Magazine
Founded in 2008, 1000 Words is an online magazine dedicated to contemporary art photography in the UK and beyond. It publishes in-depth exhibition and photobook reviews, essays, interviews and multimedia alongside carefully curated imagery, often around a particular theme. Its commitment is to showcase portfolios of lesser-known but significant photographers alongside established practitioners in the aim of bringing their work to a wider audience. Diverse in terms of subjects, concepts, styles and techniques, yet always foregrounding the subjectivity of documentary and art photography, 1000 Words intends to explore the limits and possibilities of the medium. 1000 Words is widely considered to be one of the most exciting spaces to engage with photography outside of the conventional outlet of galleries, books and print magazines. Now on its sixteenth “issue”, 1000 Words attracts approximately 140,000 unique visitors from more than 120 countries every month.

»Die Böhm« is a Foto-Fanzine published by Katja Stuke & Oliver Sieber since 1999. Each issue is the juxtaposition of two different bodies of work, one each by Stuke and Sieber, under a single collective title. Both photographers are concerned primarily with issues surrounding portraiture, the mediated image, the expressions of self-identity influenced by popularculture, in particular youth sub-cultures. (Darius Himes, Photobookreview, 2012)
Die Böhm is published three times a year.
